4 Common Roofing Materials

Milledge Roofing Company understands the difficulty in choosing the appropriate roof material for your home or building can be overwhelming, with numerous choices available to you. At our roofing company, we recognize how essential it is to select one that will meet all of your requirements; our team of experts has extensive knowledge of each material's characteristics, benefits, and considerations - and this article will look at four popular choices such as asphalt shingles, tile roof materials, slate/synthetic slate materials and wood roof materials that you might want to explore further; By understanding these materials' features, you can make informed choices that suit both preferences and requirements.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are an affordable, versatile, and simple roofing material in North America due to their affordability, versatility, and installation ease. Composed of an asphalt-soaked base mat coated with mineral granules for enhanced UV protection, their colors and styles complement various architectural designs while offering UV ray protection and fire and wind resistance. Plus, their lifespan - typically 15-30 years, depending on quality - means low maintenance requirements are minimally maintained over their lifespan.

Tile Roofing Materials

Tile roofing materials such as clay or concrete tiles offer an aesthetic touch to any structure while being highly durable, long-lived, and energy efficient. Tile roofs have long been prized for their longevity - withstanding strong winds, heavy rainfall, and extreme temperatures and providing insulation against summer heat and warmth in colder seasons. Plus, they require minimal maintenance, with some lasting over 50 years! However, it must be noted that they require proper structural support during installation to be successful.

Slate and Synthetic Slate Materials

Slate roofing materials have long been valued for their elegance, durability, and natural beauty. Crafted from natural stone, slate roofs offer timeless sophistication to any property while offering resistance against fire, wind, and hail and minimal maintenance needs. They can last over 100 years with proper care and regular inspection. However, natural slate can be costly, while synthetic alternatives offer an affordable alternative that replicates its look while being lighter and easier to install.

Wood Roof Materials

Cedar shakes, and shingles add rustic charm to traditional and historic buildings alike, while their renewable, sustainable, biodegradable nature makes them eco-friendly. Furthermore, they boast excellent insulation properties to reduce energy costs while keeping interior temperatures comfortable - however, regular maintenance must be performed to prevent rot, insect infestations, fire hazards, etc. The lifespan of wood roofs typically lasts 20-40 years, depending on climate factors.

My wife and I just bought a house and noticed that the roof needed to be fixed. Everyone that I talked to recommended this company and now I can see why. Mike is super friendly, quick to respond, and the quality of work is amazing! He and his team came out, quoted us, and had the new roof on within the week.
